Wavelength conversion based on four-wave mixing (FWM) in a silicon-organic hybrid slot waveguide is theoretically investigated in the telecommunication bands. Compared with vertical slot waveguides, the horizontal slot waveguide structure exhibits much flatter dispersion. The maximum nonlinearity coefficient γ of 1.5×10⁷ W⁻¹ km⁻¹ and the minimum effective mode area A(eff) of 0.065  μm² are obtained in a horizontal slot waveguide with a 20-nm-thick optically nonlinear layer by controlling the… CONTINUE READING
